Interested in History? Explore the Old Southern Days
Although living in the present during your beach vacation is important, it is also important to appreciate the past. It is captivating and interesting to explore the centuries and decades of past that make up history on the Grand Strand.
Here is an informative guide to finding the places that relive the past of what was before the present-day Myrtle Beach:
North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum- “The Museum's mission is to foster a deeper appreciation for culture, history, and science of the North Myrtle Beach area.” Step inside to this new facility that is booming with artifacts, pictures and historical facts about the area. Learn about how the tourism industry was built here and who we have to thank for building up this beach vacation destination.
Brookgreen Gardens- Not only a sanctuary of history but also of beauty is what Brookgreen Gardens has to offer. Anna Hyatt Huntington is a famous sculptress, and Archer, her husband, founded the Brookgreen Gardens in 1931. It has been attracting locals and visitors alike for the better part of a century. The sculptures are immaculately kept as is the gardens, zoo and butterfly exhibit. Less than a thirty minute ride from Landmark will bring you to these gardens that you won't want to leave.
Waccamaw River Tours- Step into a river boat with Waccamaw River Tours and get a glimpse at a different angle of history while being immersed in nature. Learn not only about the history of the area and those who roamed before you, but also of the wildlife who roamed then and now. The River Tour happens to glide by a preservation zoo which gives the tour guests a chance to see buffalo, zebra, fallow deer, emus, sheep and more. This is a wonderful learning experience for adults and children. They will learn interesting facts about animals and their surroundings, which they cannot find in a classroom. Give your family the experience of fun and facts here. Enjoy $3.00 off per person with your VMB Card. Call for reservations and use code: VMB14 & present card at check-in.
